Miracles cluster around Elijah as around Moses and Jesus. Elijah calls Israel to return to the covenant. His message is that of John the Baptist – repent and produce fruit in keeping with repentance! His ministry is a pivotal one too. What struck you as you read this history?
* Dear Lord God, we love You for You have heard our voice, our pleas for mercy. You have inclined Your ear to us, and so we will call on You as long as we live!
“O man of God, please let my life, and the life of these fifty servants of yours, be precious in your sight.”
As the captain of the fift6y, the third set of men who had approached the prophet – As he cried to Elijah it is clear that he did so with great exclamation and fear!
So for us, this is to be our attitude when we come before the Lord in repentance and belief.
Have mercy on me, a sinner!
And how good it is that YES! In Jesus our lives _are_ precious in the sight of the Almighty God.
Hallelujah, what a wonderful Saviour!
* God Above,
Wonderful, counsellor, mighty God – May Your Name be praised.
Thank You that You count our lives as precious in Your sight. Lambs rescued by the Good Shepherd. Hearts healed by the Great Physician.
Thank You for the life we have in You.
